The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has announced nominees in three television categories for the 26th Annual Outstanding Achievement Awards competition. The awards ceremony will be held here on February 12 at the Hollywood & Highland Grand Ballroom.
Nominees in the one-hour Episodic Television Series/Pilot Category are:
Freeman, Moxness and Stockton have won ASC Awards. Freeman took home awards for Boardwalk Empire (2011) and Homeland Security in (2005), and earned additional nominations for Boardwalk Empire (2011), Taken (2003), Strange Justice (2000) and Prince Street (1998). Moxness won for this work on Smallville (2007). Stockton earned his ASC Award for Eleventh Hour in 2009, and a nomination for Nikita (2011).
This is the fifth ASC nomination for Franco who was previously nominated for Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2008), Intensity (1998), Falling for You (1996), and Million Dollar Babies (1995).
Bagdonas has three prior nominations for photographing Chicago Hope (1997, 1998) and Hunter (1990).
Collecting their second nominations are Lachman (Far From Heaven, 2003) and Weaver (Pushing Daisies, 2008). The remaining nominees revel in their first nomination.
HBO shows lead the pack with four nominations, followed by PBS and ABC with three, and Showtime with two. The Hub and ReelzChannel claimed one each.
“Narrowing down the field to these nominees was a tough task given the tremendous quality of work being done,” says ASC President Michael Goi. "Innovation and technology has raised the bar for television viewers, and these nominees’ imagery more than meets a new standard.”
